Erased Tapes

Rival Consoles - Hidden [Video]

Rival Consoles have released a new video today for the track Hidden, taken from the album Persona. Really beautiful light and dark images with some amazing projections and archive BBC monitors.


“This film was quite a journey to creation,” says director Dan Medhurst. “After shooting a live performance of Ryan, we fed those shots through a series of old BBC editing monitors and projectors. We filmed more layers and introduced textures and distortion with some fresnel lenses. This gave us a different dynamic and really added some warmth to the film. Through this process of sending the video from digital to analogue signal, and then back again, we created a rich blend of abstract visuals that changed and morphed into something entirely new by the end.”

Erased Tapes is Ten...

On February 5th 2017 Erased Tapes opened the doors to their new East London home, marking the 10th anniversary by introducing their fans and the public to the new Erased Tapes Sound Gallery.

Head on over to the new Erased Tapes website to download Erased Tapes Collection VIII ... entirely for free! It is exactly what we needed to perk us up on a very gray morning. A reminder that as part of their tenth-anniversary celebrations, Robert Raths and the Erased Tapes team will be curating a very special label showcase at our 15th Century Church during Sea Change.
